About the Painting

Standing on the rim of Canyon de Chelly at daybreak, the light is so magical, bringing the canyon floor suddenly out of its pre-dawn gloom with a rainbow burst of color. The cottonwoods are green with spring, the fields lush with recent rains.

This painting was created on a gallery-depth canvas with the painting continued around the edges. The painting will arrive in a beautiful hardwood floater frame, ready to hang.
